Biodiversity Action Plan

By 2016 december

New Zealand has a new action plan setting targets for protection of our unique native animals and environment.

Conservation Minister Maggie Barry says New Zealand’s Biodiversity Action Plan 2016-2020 sets out how to turn the tide of biodiversity loss and counter threats to native species.

The updated Action Plan includes Predator Free 2050, the Government’s commitment to ridding the country of rats, stoats and possums.

It also includes targets to rid 500,000 hectares of wilding conifer infestation and expansion of the Healthy Nature, Healthy People programme.
